Experienced Phi Beta Kappa Tutor with MS in Mathematical Physics
I am a creative and effective tutor with Master's degree in Physics and years of experience working with students of all ages. My tutoring goal is always to help the student should develop a deep and thorough understanding of the material - not merely know how to get the correct answer. That way, they can become self-reliant and use their knowledge to solve new and challenging problems on their own. I have a highly effective teaching method, and the many glowing reviews that my students have...
I am a creative and effective tutor with Master's degree in Physics and years of experience working with students of all ages. My tutoring goal is always to help the student should develop a deep and thorough understanding of the material - not merely know how to get the correct answer. That way, they can become self-reliant and use their knowledge to solve new and challenging problems on their own. I have a highly effective teaching method, and the many glowing reviews that my students have left on my profile speak for themselves. I have spent years tutoring professionally and have helped students as young as 6 and as old as 52 develop the understanding and the confidence that they need to succeed.
I received my MS in Physics from the University of Kentucky, and I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Centre College with a BA in Classical Studies. As a result, I specialize in physics and calculus, but I have a deep pool of knowledge covering a broad range of topics - including logic, philosophy, literature, and many other branches of mathematics. In the years since I started tutoring, I have also branched out into test prep - especially GMAT and GRE.
I have been tutoring college and high school students for many years. As an undergrad, my physics department hired to me to run evening tutoring sessions, and during graduate school, I tutored physics and calculus independently. In 2014, I was hired by a professional tutoring service in Nashville, Tennessee to do after-school tutoring with students from middle school, high school, and college. This tutoring service also ran a home school program where I worked one-on-one with high school-aged students who had various learning differences (including ADHD and Social Anxiety Disorder). I really enjoy working with young people and have an enormous amount of experience doing so under unusual circumstances.
Since then, I have moved to Los Angeles and now privately tutor students from across the socioeconomic and learning needs spectrums.

Concise, pointed guidance
As always, a fantastic lesson. Geoffrey never disappoints. He makes learning my material fun. He breaks down all the complexity of the textbook into the chunks that really matter. And as such through working with him over this semester he has increased my competence and my ability to enjoy what I am learning.Jacob, 32 lessons with Geoffrey
Incredible Physics and Math Tutor!
You will not find a better tutor than Geoffrey! He worked with me on college-level classes on quantum and statistical mechanics and analytic mechanics. He is incredibly knowledgeable and patient, and can really clarify concepts. He will identify your weaknesses and target them. He's an excellent communicator, does amazingly good exam revision and is familiar with most of the key textbooks in use. He is flexible with schedules and manages to accommodate last minute changes pretty well...and he has a great sense of humor! His math and physics are particularly strong. I would take him again in a heartbeat...he's my go-to tutor from now on!Joshua, 122 lessons with Geoffrey
Excellent and efficient Tutor. Easy to work with.
Geoffrey does an excellent job of teaching the material and giving me a methodical approach to completing difficult Physics problems. He also has doing an excellent job of preparing for my next exam.Erick, 16 lessons with Geoffrey
Geoffrey exhibits great patience while tutoring. He identifies the problem areas and concentrated on getting complete understanding in those areas. He is very thorough in the work he does.Amber, 6 lessons with Geoffrey
He taught me the value of exponential decay and its relation to capacitors. This relationship is further solidified by understanding how each capacitor is differently affected when put into series or parallel.Stephen , 3 lessons with Geoffrey
A fantastic tutor!
Geoffrey is a gifted tutor. Truly. My 17-year-old son has benefited greatly under Geoffrey's tutelage. He is prompt, and gets right down to business. He's a gem.Janice, 9 lessons with Geoffrey
He is the central reason that I’m looking at an A in my logic class at UCB. I would recommend him to anyone, incredibly helpful and kind. I am so thankful for all of his help!Natasha, 14 lessons with Geoffrey
Great tutor for Linear Algebra!
I met with Geoffrey three times while studying Linear Algebra and he has been knowledgeable and helpful at all times. He has answered my questions with patience and clarity. Definitely recommended!Petr, 12 lessons with Geoffrey
Simple and straightforward
I have worked with Geoffrey through two physics courses and could not be more impressed. I had been terrified of the subject for a while, but Geoffrey made the material simple and was able to relate it to everyday situations. He understands what professors intend to teach and fills in the gaps where necessary. I HIGHLY recommend Geoffrey's services and would work with him a third time if I had the chance.Ricky, 14 lessons with Geoffrey
Having had experience with multiple tutors on Wyzant, struggling with a variety of school subjects, specifically math, I was extremely impressed as to how Geoffrey was able to completely understand my course dynamic and produce his own problem sets and tutoring methods tailored to my needs. I went from a C- in the class at the start of the course to an A- by the end. I would highly recommend scheduling a lesson with Geoffrey if you’re looking to achieve your best. Math was never my thing and I never thought that it would ever be. I had convinced myself tutoring would just slightly help me, but looking back on how far I’ve come and the extent to which I now understand mathematics thoroughly I can’t thank Geoffrey enough for getting me to this point. He is understanding, caring, positive and no matter the topic he knows it. Not only does he understand the subject matter to the highest degree but he knows the quickest and most effective way for you to learn it and apply it in class. All in all absolutely outstanding tutor, which I will be recommending to all my peers who express interest.Sam, 8 lessons with Geoffrey
